FOR CRUST:

Press mixture slightly up sides of pan (less than 1/4 inch) to form lip to hold filling.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Return to oven; bake 35 to 40 minutes more or until filling is set. loosen edges with knife. Cool completely on wire rack before cutting into squares. Cover and refrigerate until 10 to 15 minutes before serving
